About Bronwyn Laughlin
Hi, we are Bronwyn and Kieran We have always wanted a country escape from Melbourne and it has finally become a reality. Kieran is a fanatical North Melbourne fan. I love animals and crave escaping Melbourne! We met in London at work and have travelled a lot around Europe and now many road trips within Australia with our two dogs. We enjoy day trips exploring new areas, reading, continuing the UNO Championship we do every holiday, and lots of walks along the beach or bush. Being new to HomeAway we welcome your honest feedback and suggestions on how we could improve The Mia Mia. We hope you find your stay a peaceful relaxing place to reconnect with nature and recharge your batteries, and hope you love it as much as we do. If you have any questions or would like to know anything else we'd love to year from you.

Why Bronwyn Laughlin chose Newstead
I grew up in Tassie and since moving to Melbourne after university I craved a country escape and got a fixation with Castlemaine. Twenty years later my dream came true. I love The Mia Mia. It is surrounded by 17 acres yet benefits from town water and electricity and is walking distance from the town. Newstead is a lovely friendly community packed with history. It has everything you need - a supermarket, cafe, butcher and newsagent. Beyond Newstead, there are plenty of towns and local markets to explore - something we do often.
What makes this House unique
I love being up on the hill, watching the sunset over the paddocks in summer, and star gazing around the fire pit in winter. There are plenty of spots inside and outside to relax with a good book.

Lovely country retreat with lots of wildlife. House had all the amenities and the beds were extremely comfortable. An easy walk into town and nice cafes to visit. Very dog friendly! Added bonus was the en-suite in the main bedroom.
My son loved putting out the supplied bird seed for the birds and watching the different birds that came. Front yard was secure for my dog. Beds were super comfy and everything we needed was there.
We really enjoyed staying here. Thanks so much Bronwyn & Kieran.
Peace and quiet
Mia Mia was the perfect place for the family to unwind. It was the perfect location for us to venture out and explore around Maldon and Castlemaine. In the evenings the Kids loved relaxing in the tree swings while we found ourselves relaxing on the outdoor couch around the fire. Our dog also enjoyed her stay with so much space to explore.
House had everything we needed including super comfortable beds. Thanks Bronwyn for a great weekend away.
Mia Mia Homestead bliss
We had a wonderful stay at Mia Mia Homestead. Bronwyn was so easy to deal with and was very responsive. Mia Mia is ideally located to access the Central Goldfields are and all its attractions as well as being a warm and cosy place to stay, surrounded by rolling hills and pastures.
Thanks for your kind words Jennie. We were so pleased to hear you were enjoying those simple pleasures that we do at The Mia Mia. The house was left neat and tidy and you are welcome back anytime.
